A few weeks ago, I popped into Goodwill on my way home from the gym.
I almost always head to the lamp aisle first. I have a whole regular route to be quite honest.
But back to the lamps....My eyes immediately fell upon a beautiful golden globe lamp.
Ha, you thought I won some big award, didn't you? Hardly - I can't sing, I can't act,
heck, I can't even snap my fingers properly. Again, back to the lamp.....
How could I pass this up?
You won't believe me when I tell you I only paid $10 for it.
IT'S TRUE, I promise.
And I picked up the shade at my local grocery store for $12.99.
That's right, you can get a gallon of milk and the perfect drum shade at my Kroger.
Here's the thing, in order to find great things at thrift shops, you have to go often.
I never set out to go thrifting, I just quickly stop in a few of my favorite stores when I'm close by. Rarely do I ever go out of my way to thrift.
I am planning a post on thrifting for next week.
Oh, and I prefer to call it treasure hunting, seems classier, don't you think?
Are you a treasure hunter?
